interest in china and chinese religions. >> well i studied religion in temple university in philadelphia. and then went in to chinese history and my degree is in chinese history, modern, but also always interested in chinese thought and the classics. i went to taiwan in the years before it was possible for americans to go to the main land to study, i studied classical chinese and so the great writers, philosophers and thinkers at the time and then i ended up writing my dissertation about mao tse-tung, so very i'm much in the contemporary era. so i've kind of done a lot of things in taiwan to shanghai where i taught at east china normal university and later in hong kong, where i'm going again as a full writer. >> okay that's good. how long did it take you to get through grad school? >> that's right, i did it - it's a lot to absorb but i was - actually it was nixon's visit in 1972/73 that opened up in a sense china to the u.s. they saw it as opening china outward to the broader world and it intrigued me and i said this is going to be big and we need more people to know what's going on betw
the eastern religion, with the world but it goes deeper than that because when we think about culture in china, it is a such an old civilization. and this symbol, besides its implications specifically within the religion, talks about balance, and harmony, and unity. and these are aspects of the eastern, the east asian world; touched on those a bit with buddhism, we'll see buddhism is in the mix, but the sense of the oneness, the unity of all things. now, think for a moment religiously how different that is. we don't have what i would call ontological dualism, we don't have a situation here where the world is here, human life is here, we live in history, and god angels the forces of creation are apart from that. what if everything belonged to one system? we are moving along the line more on the line of a monist. how would you react, ethically, if you felt that you, though you might have a different position in this oneness, you were a part of it, truly a part, there is a part in a part thing you have been dealing with the whole semester? that's a part of the instinct, that move
in that inherent selfishness finds its way into any culture in any religion. what you're saying, susanna, really strikes me with the law profession, is that if you're- and we're back to the experiential dimension- if you conceive of yourself as the spoke in the wheel, you're the hub, the world revolves around you and everybody else is going to ultimately be after you, then it's very difficult to not take the newspapers, to not want to find a way to get ahead, to jump ahead. but you know, that's the way it is in society. warren, go ahead; you've had your hand waving. >> i always hear that this is a very litigious society that we live in, but my experience has led me to believe that there's not enough litigation. i have known many people over the years who had cases who were really abused by doctors- mostly doctors- and would not sue them. but i mean, it was a clear case of neglect or malpractice. and i think some people i think cannot sue because, you know, the law is against them or something. but i know two people that had dead-bang malpractice committed on them and they wouldn't sue- real prob
land, religion, the ethical dimension, and its impact on society. >> well, the issue of land has been an issue for a century also in the zionist movement. first of all, sovereignty needs territory. sovereignty presumes territory. and therefore, the question of territory was one that came hand in hand with the zionists' dream of creating a sovereign state. now the question of the- "which land? how much land?" is a question that's been going on for a century, and it should be put in perspective, because what we're seeing now is the latest chapter following the six day war of an ongoing discussion of the century. the discussion began a century ago when theodore herzl proposed his uganda plan, which was to say if the idea of zionism is basically to alleviate the situation of jews in europe, which already people felt a century ago to be untenable, then any land would do- uganda as well as palestine- of the time. and this provoked the first great debate within the zionist movement between those who are for seeking sovereignty in the land of israel, and those who said, well, sovereignty can

it is it associated with the religion or another school? >> non-secular and nonsectarian. what does it cost to go? >> i have no idea. i don't know the answer to that question either but i do know over time it began to open the story's not just the offspring of the middle east but regarded none of religion. the class's and religions and that's appeal. it sets its merit. >> how is it viewed in the middle east when i think those were two separate questions. that would provide suspicion on the part of the middle east when the school opened in the late 1860's who didn't have deep roots in the region, but rather quickly it became apparent to the middle easterners who were not just orthodox christians, but muslims and jews because this was the best place to get the best possible education and at the generation by 1900 had become what it remains to this day which is part of the middle east and what's magnificent about that is it is an all-inclusive institution founded by serving the interest of the people of the middle east regarding of background. and this is an example of the united states giving to th

[applause] >> ladies and gentlemen, we will bring up our founder to say a few last words. we would like to ask all of the previous speakers to come up for a photograph. it is the hard work of these board members -- without their hard work, none of this would happen. thank you to everyone. >> we would also like for the judicial officers in the audience to come up as well. if you are a sponsor, please come on up. we will ask the founder to speak a few words. ladies and gentlemen, we will start our cultural program after words. food
>>> coming up, religion's role in the election. also a lucky severson story on helping wounded veterans overcome what many of them say they greatly miss, feeling needed. >> wcome, i'bob erney. it's good to have you with us. like many others in the nation, faith groups are assessing the impact of this week's election. according to exit polls, president obama won a slight majority of catholic voters overall, thanks largely to strong support from latino catholics. mitt romney won the white catholic vote by an almost 20-point margin. almost 80% of evangelicals who voted voted for romney. black protestants went overwhelmingly for obama, as did the vast majority of jews. but the biggest share of obama's faith coalition was voters who say they aren't affiliated with any religion. steve schneck was co-chair of catholics for obama. he says while issues like abortion, religious liberty and gay marriage were important, in the end, it was the economy that tipped the scale for the president. >> all of these religious issues, while they are important to religious voters, i think, even among
evangelical women this time? >> again, i think there was always the question of religion and no one wanted to state the obvious which is governor romney's religion being mormon and whether that would impact the vote and it seemed it did impact the vote this time. it's very unfortunate because i think, at the end, what we need in america would have been a president that could push our economy forward and do what we need to do do get out of the economic crisis we have been in. you know, really, it's unfortunate when 2 million less people voted this time. >> even in the swing state of virginia, you had less evangelicals come out as they did for mccain in 2008. 6% to 8% stayed at home. >> you would hope we could cross the race and religion barrier. >> but let me ask you this -- granted, i thought the republican field from the beginning was incredibly weak. >> absolutely. >> but i saw republicans, once romney got the nomination, partisans gatheri around him and saying, oh, the mormon issue isn't going to matter. and it did matter. there are evangelicals who see mormons as a sect and not christi
there was such a little god, jesus, religion and was all political and was all paranoid. they're coming to get us and we have to get ready. i'm not sure that i observed the insight that it gave me but it sure made me understand more about the fear that is out there and often behind the vitriol that we experience and i often, you know when someone comes at me either directly or indirectly the way that i try to stay sympathetic to ask what are they afraid of and is their anything i can say that convinces them that there is no need to be afraid but this was a double dose and it really shook me and helped me understand a little bit better of what we were against. many of our enemies in this movement are in the business of ratcheting up people's anxiety often to make money or to work for a particular political party or candidate or for whatever reason, it seems to me that they are simply brilliant at ratcheting up the anxiety. this service was not anything about the comfort that comes from a loving god, it was all about what is going to happen and it ain't going to be pretty. so get ready. i think we need to
while we don't have jurisdiction over religion in the same way we don't over sexual orientation, what we're seeing in all of these -- and all of these are case by case, you can't just broad sweep the laws -- when students are bullied and harassed in this world because of religion, in most instances a lot of that is not about race or religion, it's because. perception that students that share certain religious traits also share certain ethnicities and that is discrimination and that falls under title 6. it is not just about enforcing the laws that make it clear how the laws apply. it is, though, as we said, you can't get at this through enforcement alone. this is a culture that tolerates this and in too many ways promotes it. as tom mentioned we have an unprecedented partnership not just between our agencies but agencies across the federal government that the president has convened to bring our best resources and minds to bear to do something about it. there is now a web site, where a tool kit is being developed and these kinds of best practices are being promoted. the
, this organized religion. he is not ready to, you know, get organized religion. he is fascinated by the concept that there is somebody called god-- which happens to us. it happened to me in childhood. i used to wait for the time when-- for the time of prayer i used to wait and i used to cry. you know, who is god? >> rose: this is where pi begins the journey. he were it is. this is our first scene. ♪ ♪ >> my name is pi. i have been in a shipwreck. i am on a lifeboat alone with a tiger. please send help. >> rose: what's happening in that scene? >> well, it's just like-- it's very hard to fin to define god. it is very hard to define what tiger is to pi. there are the obstacles of the beast. there's, you know, pi, the inner beast, the crouching tiger, so to speak, in him. so in the spiritual moment, in the hopelessness, his looking at his opponent, but at the same time, himself, the fearful tiger and also the truth of his own self, and this is the moment before he revealed himself to god, not religious god, but god in the abstract sense. as you can see, the water is like mirror. it's very refl
others through their religion? that was not her fate. what was the result? here's what happened. >> days later she did miscarry, became infected and died of blood poisoning. her husband described their last moments together: >> cenk: that's her husband, was and apparently she said before dying: >> cenk: of course that's not true there was plenty they could do but chose not to do it because they are bar barians. i don't care your religion and i don't want it forced on me. i don't believe in your religion and you have no business trying to run everybody else's lives and bodies because of what you think your religion said and that is true if you're catholic, protestant or muslim. they complain about the taliban and about sharia law and all these muslims across the world that want to impose their religion on others. that is exactly what these catholics are doing in ireland and here in the united states, as well, and not just catholics but evangelicals, as well. get our out of bodies. you want to talk about small government conservatives liars. they don't believe in small government at all. t
, religion anything. it was all political and was all paranoid. it was their coming to get us. and we have got to get ready. i am not even sure i absorbent the insight that it gave me. but it sure made me understand more about the fear that is out there and are often behind the vitriol that we experience. i think we had better pay attention to that. when someone comes at me either directly or indirectly with something awful the way i try to stay sympathetic to them is to ask the question what are they afraid of? and is there anything i can say that convinces them there's really no need to be afraid. this was a double dose of that. it really shook me and helped me understand a little bit better what we are against. i think many of our enemies in this movement are in the business of ratcheting up people's and variety. often to make money or to work for particular political party or candidate or for whatever reason, it seems to me that they are simply brilliant at ratcheting up the anxiety. this hole service was not anything about the comfort that comes from a loving god. it was all about wha
that. very modern. very open-minded. unlike for some, there's no question of religion, of color of skin, or anything like that. people can be all beautiful. it depends on who they are, but it is not a question of color. for me, both of us were beautiful. and i loved color. color of the skin. tattoo on the skin, which is a kind of color. some blue colors that you add. and i wanted to show that. when i started, i remember that there were some beautiful girls. they're beautiful. but i felt like, ok, but there is also beauty. i have a girlfriend which was modeling for me that i met very early when i started that was from a french colony. she was beautiful and black and very inspiring, very nice. i say, yes, why not. for me, a difference was beautiful. they looked to me, and i wanted to show it. another kind of different was the fact that when i saw farida, i said, my god, she is incredible. i was very impressed by her beauty. very frightened even by her beauty. she was kind of a very arrogant imperial. and african and beauty with a special expression. not arrogant. but beautiful. i said, i
't -- >> jon: not a big hit. he was called an atheist a at a time. >> an atheist in religion and a fanatic in politics by alexander hamilton of whom jefferson responded after saying that they were daily pitted in the cabinet like two cocks constantly at each other. >> jon: sure. (laughter) that will happen in a cabinet. (laughter) >> pressing on -- >> jon: please. (laughter) am i soiling your pulitzer. (laughter) i'm getting a little tarnish on your pulitzer. >> please don't say "soil." (laughter) as a favor. >> jon: you give as good as you get there. >> as a favor, baby. and then skwrofr son responded by saying he declined to have his reputation slandered by a man for whom history from the moment history could stoop to notice him-- with hamilton, who was an illegitimate child-- had not only received his -- received him into the country but had heaped his honors on his head. and all that hamilton had done to repay for this was to issue a tissue of machinations against the liberty of the country. >> jon: wow! >> so it was fun. i know that we think -- >> the snaps that these guys delivered!
religion and predominantly influenced by protestant, by the 20th century catholics and jews played an important role, the culture 1900 was fundamentally protestant and even the progress of the merged from the liberal protestant churches. this reenforce the second exceptional killer, common law, which posits god -- the law is given from god to the people and bubbles upward to the rulers. this gives us the government of the people, by the people and for the people that lincoln referred to. common law stands in stark opposition to almost every other nation on earth that has developed some form of civil law in which what trickles down from the top. germany and england had common law for a while but by the 20th century both had more or less abandoned it, germany more so than england. by the end of world war ii when your unloaded, however unwillingly, its colonies, those colonies were themselves designed on principles of civil law. the first true colors taken together mean a christian protestant religion influenced and shaped everything about american foundation of laws and define a syst
, and voluntary organizations to do society's work. they made the federal government neutral on religion. states could have an established religion, or they did not have to have won. we were going to leave religion -- the federal government was going to be neutral on that. that mostly worked, although there were difficulties. we had something called the civil war because he suddenly got a federal government issue, slavery and the territories -- congress was given specific power to regulate the territories are you could not avoid that issue. we had civil war. one of the problems with big government in my judgment is that when you have something like obamacare, it suddenly becomes a federal issue whether or not your insurance policy should cover the $9 a month you need to pay for contraceptive is at walmart. that is less than the price of two pumpkin lattes at starbucks. it became a national issue when we had a speaker on the prime- time tv our of the democratic convention abdicating her position. a lot of people have strong views based on their personal moral beliefs are there religious beliefs o

the romney campaign credit and romney himself for addressing his religion early on. it goes back to campaign 101. rebut what you know on the offense. that is how i would address it. >> are not surprised. i am pleased that it did not emerge as an issue but it also makes good sense. americans do not like to see people attacked because of religion. we are proud of ourselves for being in an inclusive and diverse country. we are a country that a strong enough to include different forms of religion and it would have been a political mistake to take that on, so i'm not surprised. will republicans conclude they would have done better with a candid it did not wait until he was in the primary to announce he was severely conservative? for example, i first met romney when he was a moderate pro- choice governor of massachusetts. since then, he has made more you turned down a boston cabdriver. -- more u-turns than a cab driver. the can make more correlations in the kind of voting support he got. if republicans decide what they really need to do is go back and do it even more conservative again, far be it

religion, but particularly islam, there's not always a clear understanding to what the first amendment guarantees, which is the right to teach about a religion but not proselytize about it. i think there's fear of associating with anyone associated with islam. there are events outside our control that creates more interest and unfortunately also makes people more afraid. one of the programs we are about to launch is putting all our content online so a teacher in north dakota where there are no muslim, potentially, no expert can come to her classroom, they can go to our web site and download the content and teach the things we are teaching. >> i think partnerships are the best way to overcome the limitations because we all have limitations. and sometimes it's just visibility. we actually have on our web site 50 short films and one of them is a muslim student from a school in fremont going to a school in arinda talking about what it's like going to school as a muslim in the united states and they are asking questions and you see we are all kids in school and we have more similaritie
to be clinging to my guns and my religion. >> good try, mr. ryan, but it didn't work because his budget that bishops in his own church condemned as being more in touch with selfish, secular philosophy than the gospel of jesus christ, and then as the election got ever closer plshtion ryan took part in a last-minute conference call with evangelical christians. in a desperate attempt to play the religion card, mr. ryan accused the president of taking america on a dangerous path that restricts freedom and liberty and judeo-christian values. but that, too, didn't wash. in fact, in some states the president actually did better among white evangelicals than he did four years ago. and he also won more catholics than his republican challenger. and that should come as a relief to a nation that for decades has had to put up with politicians taking religion hostage for their own personal gain. because although the president himself sf a committed christian, it wasn't his faith that won this election. it was his values.
that you would not mingle your religion with your politics. the president worried that young would be as a prince of this world and a prophet for the next. babbitt and young then argued over a few things; federal appropriations for the territory. babbitt had bought, had brought 20,000 or so dollars to utah for territorial expenditures. it was a little unclear whether he intended to hand them over to young or not. they bickered about the process of holding elections in the territory. they argued about a recently-conducted census. babbitt, rather unwisely, took issue with young's conduct of such matters. and by the end of the meeting, brigham young unloaded his fury on babbitt. this is what he said. if you sewer fear with any of -- interfere with any of my dictation in the elections, it will be the last time. now i don't want to hear you say this is not right, that is not right. you are nothing but a stinking politician. i know more about sound questions and doctrine and law than you. i am not willing to suffer this people to be interrupted. you are rotten now with gentilism. and the
